AFAIK crunchgen produces static binaries which I presume consume more
memory than dynamic ones when there are a number of processes sharing the
libs. And we really don't need Hesiod, YP or RPC support.

I found this thread in which the
original poster ends up using crunchgen. Is it really true that the
kernel handles static binaries for a number processes better than if
the binaries and libs were dynamically loaded?
